Grating projections FDTD

#1

Dear Sir/Mrs,

Concerning grating projections.
1- for this command
?G; # grating results
?G*T; # normalized to source power
found in this link. https://kb.lumerical.com/en/ref_scripts_grating.html

when we normalize the transmitted power from certain grating order why do we multiply by the T not dividing by T?

Hi @maisaad

G=grating(mname);   # power to each order (fraction of transmitted power)
T=transmission(mname); # total power transmitted through monitor (fraction of source power)

G returns the fraction of power in each order assuming transmission is 1. This result might be multiplied by transmission if we want to obtain actual power in each order.

Hope this was clear.

yes it is.
Thank you.
